Access Bars
The Bars’ is the first body process that is part of the Access Consciousness modality, created by Gary Douglas over 25 years ago. It is a touch point therapy that quiets the mind, brings us back into balance and creates ease, peace and a sense of well-being similar to a massage or meditation, except so much more. It uses 32 points on the head that when lightly touched release the electromagnetic blockages and limitations we have created and locked into our bodies over time. 
What are the benefits of having your Bars ‘run’?
- FUN, PEACE, JOY & EASE in every aspect of your life
- People or situations that once ‘drove you nuts’ no longer bother you or cause problems
- Release stress, anxiety, and depression (depression vanishes for many after just 1
